Are People Able To Work And Maintain A Normal Life While Having Chemo And Radiation?
yes, some are able to
Thanks for your query.
It depends upon the type of chemo and radiotherapy and the tolerance of the patient. But it is a fact that many patients are able to continue their normal routine during treatment.
You have not described your condition in this query but from your other questions I understand that you have not yet been diagnosed with cancer. Even if it is, chances of needing chemo and radiotherapy are low in your case.
Hope this helps.
symptoms may not be due to the tumor
Thanks for reverting.
A 7 mm mass behind bladder will not cause pain and certainly not bleeding in urine. Has somebody ruled out urinary tract infection in you?
If it is in the bladder wall, then it can cause bleeding. In that case biopsy can easily be done by putting a telescopic instrument in bladder (cystoscopy).
Please let me know the final opinion of the doctor.
I have had a cystoscopy done by the urologist who saw the mass and says it is the size of a plum, pushing up on the bladder, he said that was why i had all of these symptoms.
He has sent me to see an oncologist to do the biopsy and treat from there if it is malignant and if not then he will treat me i guess.
I see the oncologist for the first time today.
is the size bigger
There is a lot of difference between 7 mm and size of plum. Is it 7 cm?
I am unable to correlate. If it is outside the bladder and the gynecologist cannot do the biopsy then the only option will be to do CT guided biopsy. If that is also not feasible then laparoscopy can be done.
I will keep you updated.
